Transforming the Assessment of Teachers: Notes on a Theory of Assessment for the 21st Century.
The Teacher Assessment Program (TAP) presents alternative modes of teacher evaluation to inform the deliberations of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Three experimental methods of assessment--simulation exercise, portfolios, and simulation-based portfolios--were implemented by various groups of teachers. Practical application and observation helped to identify problems and effectiveness. Findings indicate that the methods are useful for teacher assessment and for establishing teachers as a community of professionals. (LMI)
